JERR-DAN & JLG Join To Make New 10 Ton RS Carrier

March 15, 2017

Jerr-Dan and JLG Industries are joining forces to produce the 10 Ton Rental Spec (RS) Carrier for use in the equipment rental industry.

The two companies, which comprise Oshkosh Corporation’s Access Equipment segment, have jointly designed, constructed, and developed a carrier for the equipment rental industry. 

Rental companies across the U.S. market expressed a need for a carrier that would allow them to transport their rental equipment and machinery.  The Jerr-Dan 10 Ton RS Carrier will be available exclusively for the rental industry through JLG Industries starting July 2017.

The Jerr-Dan 10 Ton RS Carrier dual operating box located on each side of the carrier was modeled after the aerial work platform control panels designed by JLG allowing carrier operators to easily identify functions and operate the carrier. 

Some of the carrier’s standard features will include:

  • All steel deluxe headboard with integrated 24” long grab handles and chain racks
  • Hardwood decking made with Brazilian Apitong wood available in 24 ft., 26 ft. and 28 ft. length
  • Anti-skid yellow paint treatment
  • Full function wireless remote control
  • LED lighting
  • Deck-mounted 3-step fold-out ladder.

The 10 Ton RS Carrier has lower mounted bed heights which allows for easier loading and unloading, and no special chassis modification needed. Jerr-Dan’s exclusive No-Lube technology, featuring low maintenance slide pads and pivot joints provides reliability. The 10 Ton RS Carrier will have straightforward service and maintenance requirements, and a 3-year standard warranty, making it an attractive addition to any rental fleet.

“We are excited to introduce a new carrier for our customers in the rental industry, which was designed specifically for the equipment rental business affording rentability, efficiency and durability,” said Jeff Irr, Director of Sales and Marketing for Jerr-Dan.  “The new innovation is only possible because of the synergies between Jerr-Dan and JLG integrating manufacturing knowledge and engineering expertise in order to bring a ground-breaking product to the rental industry currently not available.”

“We are thrilled to see this new built-to-last carrier come to fruition and provide the rental industry with a product,” said Bob Nelson, Vice President for North America Sales & Service for JLG Industries. “We’re proud to partner with our sister company, Jerr-Dan, and highlight the strength of our Access Equipment market capabilities.”
